Is it just me or have there been a ton of awesome songs released this Summer? I feel like when I went to Cuba earlier this year, and came home, all of these awesome songs have suddenly been released while I was away and I was shazamming everything on the radio. ( Shazamming is a word…right? 😉 )
Since then, I haven’t stopped. The music this year is just awesome!
When it comes to working out, whether it be at home or in the gym I HAVE to listen to music. It is really a must have when it comes to my workouts. I feel when I’m at the gym and I have my headphones on, my focus is so much more. You don’t hear all of the grunting from the guy on the bench press, trying to get a new personal record. You don’t hear the 100lb dumbbells being dropped on the floor from the two guys who are trying to shoulder press their heaviest. You also don’t hear all of the gossip from the girls sitting in the stretching area. Life is so much better with headphones on. lol!
When I workout at home, it is usually in my bedroom or living room. During these workouts I crank the music on my stereo and enjoy the tunes. I truly like a variety of music, but lately it seems that everything which is catching my ear is EDM or reggaeton. This workout playlist has select songs from those genres, but also some mainstream music too.
This playlist is about 40 minutes long, which is the perfect playlist for a gym workout. My workouts are usually 40 minutes, or just under then I add my stretching on top of that. Usually when I stretch I’ll skip through the faster songs and enjoy a few slower tunes. If you guys want, I can share a list of my favourite post workout cool down songs too! Just let me know!
Just recently (and I mean on Thursday) I created a Spotify account. This way, I could share my songs through a playlist on the blog and have you listen to them right from this post as long as you have an account to sing into. Isn’t that pretty cool?!?! I know all of you American bloggers have been able to do this for some time, but here in Canada, we like to take things slow. Haha!
So now you tell me some of the songs you’re loving so far this Summer. Do you have any good suggestions for me? I would love to hear your recommendations!
